We play with the style, flair and dynamic range of the great Count Basie bands, add our own special feel for the music gained through twenty years of experience playing together as a unit, and apply it all to a kaleidoscope of great tunes ranging from classic big band jazz, to standards, to contemporary fusion.
This band plays with a great sense of drive and swing and a depth of feeling you don’t often hear from a big band. With tight ensemble playing and strong solos by Renee Wood on alto, this is a great program, played by one very hard swingin’ band! And in just case you're thinking big band music might be uncool, just remember - big bands are the ones with the real heavy metal!
David, Jon and I are musical friends and have been for years. We enjoy each other’s company, we’re comfortable and happy together, and we’d like to share that friendship with you. The tunes in this set are all standards we love. They live quietly at the heart of our music and range in color from playful and joyous, to outright, no-doubt-about-it romantic.
